Cedar Oil - A Natural Flea Remedy that Works
I often get asked for a natural flea remedy that people can use on both dogs and cats that can replace the toxic chemical spot on treatments that are currently in use. I tried a number of natural products including Neem Oil, which canít be used on cats and until Cedar Oil I had been very disappointed with the results.
So I trialled Cedar Oil and found a natural product that actually kills the fleas on contact. It also kills lice, mites, and deters biting insects. I have also found that if a dog has hot spots it will help stop the itching and promote hair growth. This product was developed for the troops in Iraq to defend them against biting insects such as sand fleas and mosquitoes. The formulation I use it totally natural and was developed by a Holistic Veterinarian in the United States.
This product can be used on dogs and cats, is biodegradable and made with food grade Cedar Oil. It is safe to use on yourself as well so no need to rush to the tap to wash the Cedar Oil of your hands once applied to your pets. It will not stain furniture or attract dirt and your kids can pat and play with the animals without fear of any toxicity. You donít need to drown your pet in the Cedar Oil.
With cats I tend to spray it on my hands and massage the oil through their coat, making sure I cover their body and then I rub over the cat with a small towel to stop them from licking it all off, as cats do love to groom themselves. Please avoid applying Cedar Oil any were on the face or around the eyes. I spray some on my hand and rub it under the chin making sure I avoid the nose and eye area. I also spray around any area they tend to sleep as it kills the eggs and larvae of the flea as well. You can apply the oil as often as needed; outdoor cats will need more frequent applications.
For dogs I spray the oil directly onto them and rub it into their coats, making sure I have treated their stomach and groin area, all along the spine and around the tail, also down the tail as well as fleas can hide here as well, their legs and necks. Like the cats I put the oil on my hands and rub it under their chins, avoiding around the eyes and nose area. Again you can apply Cedar Oil as often as needed, but if going to a place where you suspect there will be fleas then spray their legs, stomach and groin area and around their tails to stop the fleas getting onto them and coming into your home.
I have included a link to the information on the site in the USA on the use of Cedar Oil in animals for those who would like to read more about the uses for this product. I am stocking this product as I am very passionate about giving people the option of treating their dogs without the use of chemicals that lead to so many health issues such as skin issues and seizures.
